Also, does the time frame vary according to the oil and filter you buy?

My search function is not working, so I apologize if this is a duplicate question.
This is the subject of much discussion - one of the top 3-4 thread subjects, along with all the arguments about which oil is best.

Answer is, in your case, once per year. The nominal is 15K miles or one year (in the USA).
